Rounding out the plum spirit offerings is UME, a delightfully tart and subtly sweet fruit liqueur with a rather unique quality… a dazzling royal purple hue.

Founders Jenn Toyzer and Katy Brandes partnered with California molecular spirits producer Endless West to, well, science the sh*t out of a new kind of plum liqueur.

After storing in the tanks for several months, the liqueur is then transferred to age to the old brandy barrels of the renowned Cognac brand “Louis Royer”.A multiple award winner, this remarkable, exceptional quality drink is presented in a dark glass bottle featuring an original label created in 1874.

There’s more alcohol in liqueur than in wine (about 20% by volume), and you add it directly (as vodka, usually). Liqueurs are sweeter too – from 15 – 30% sugar (by weight). Sometimes higher. Making a recipe revolves around the amount of alcohol, sugar, and water you want in the final product. This recipe will yield about 25% alcohol (by volume) and 18% sugar (by weight). I wouldn’t go below 20% alcohol, but feel free to vary the sugar and alcohol to your taste.If you have a couple pounds of plums this summer and vodka, add sugar and aromatics to fashion you own plum wine for the holidays.
